2nd October 2016: Turkey Street circular

Myddleton House

There was a good turnout of 13 for this pleasant walk on a fine autumn day. The route took us from Turkey Street station to Enfield Lock, turning north along the river Lea (or Lee). After a coffee stop at the Narrow Boat cafe, we continued to the White Water Rafting centre which was very busy, though not too much white water to be seen. Leaving the Lee Valley Country Park we headed for lunch in Cedars Park, the site of 17th century Theobalds Palace where an ornamental folly remains as well as a cafe in the conservatory and a bocce court (as in the Paralympics). From here we joined the New River Path southwards, pausing to watch a family fishing for the many crayfish, which they said were good to eat. The lovely gardens and cafe of Myddleton House were our final stop before returning to Turkey Street station.
